The Norwegian authorities have contacted the EU to get Norway into Re-open EU, the Union’s overview of travel advice and restrictions during the Coronavirus crisis.

The website to help Europeans find out how they can travel and what rules apply was launched last week. As a non-EU country, Norway is not included, but at the same time it is part of the Schengen area and encouraged by the European Commission to open the borders in line with the other countries.

When asked by the Labour Party’s Svein Roald Hansen to include Norway on the overview, Foreign Minister Ine Eriksen Søreide (H) said she thought it was a good idea.

“The Norwegian authorities have therefore contacted the European Commission to include Norway in the list of countries on Re-open EU,” she wrote in a reply to the Storting representative.

She added that information about Norwegian rules and travel advice for Norwegian citizens can be found on the Government’s website about the Coronavirus situation.
